Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

Is a Split System Air Conditioner the Right Choice for Your Home?

A split system air conditioner refers to a simple unit that is directly vented outside the house, and which is not connected to your home's ductwork like a central air conditioning unit. It is unlike a window unit in that it is installed in a wall or even the ceiling.

If you're thinking about installing a new air conditioning system in your home, you might consider a split system. This can be installed in addition to a central unit or on its own. The split system offers many advantages to homeowners; note a few of those here.

1. Cost and energy savings

A split system air conditioner does not cool your entire house, which can result in cost and energy savings. Throughout the summer season, you might note how often you run your central air conditioning unit to keep your entire house cool when the family is gathered in the living room, or when you just need the bedroom cooled at night. Rather than cooling your entire home when you just want part of it comfortable, you can run a split system in one area of the home and in turn, use less energy and pay less for your air conditioning each season.

2. Permanent installation

A window unit can cool just one room of the house and these are a good choice for apartment dwellers who want to take their unit with them when they change residences. However, window units can be very cumbersome to install and heavier units may need bracing up from the back and outside of the home. This can make it almost impossible for someone to install this type of unit on their own, and makes it very inconvenient when you want to remove the unit in the fall. A window unit also blocks the window so you're left without as much sunlight.

A split system unit is a permanent installation. It is put in the wall or ceiling so that it doesn't need additional bracing, and you don't need to worry about removing it after the summer is over. It can be very inconspicuous, without blocking sunlight or fresh air as does a window unit. This too is a reason to consider having it installed in your home.

If you would like more information about split system ACs, you can contact local suppliers and installers like Belly's Air Conditioning before making your final decision.
